After 137 days, the former Congress leader Rahul Gandhi returned to Parliament on Monday after the Lok Sabha secretariat approved his return as an MP in the Lower House. On Friday, the Supreme Court stayed the conviction in the defamation case of Rahul Gandhi which restored his Parliament membership. The celebratory atmosphere among the Congress supporters as the notification of his restoration as a Lok Sabha MP was released by Utpal Kumar Singh, General Secretary of Lok Sabha. Congress party with its INDIA alliance members welcomed Rahul Gandhi very warmly in the Parliament, Congress Parliamentary Party Chairperson and Lok Sabha MP also joined them. Congress leaders expressed their happiness at this news by feeding each other sweets at the party office. 


On his arrival Rahul Gandhi straightforwardly went to the Mahatma Gandhi statue and paid homage to him, after this he also raised the slogans of ‘Satyamev Jayate’ there. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge along with senior leader K.C Venugopal congratulated the people of Wayanad. Unprecedented visuals come from the parliament, where so many leaders greeted him with joy. 


Just after he reached the parliament he organised a meeting with Manipur PCC (Pradesh Congress Committee) President Shri Keisham Meghachandra, CLP (Congress Legislature Party) leader and former CM Okram Ibobi Singh and other leaders from the violence-hit state. In the meeting Congress Parliamentary Party Chairperson Sonia Gandhi along with Party President Mallikarjun Kharge and senior leader K.C Venugopal were present. He also changed his Twitter bio to ‘Member of Parliament.’ 


Reports suggested that now the Congress party will take an aggressive approach in the Parliament on the Manipur issue and No-confidence motion. Amid sloganeering and disagreements in the houses, both houses are adjourned till 2 PM. On one side Congress wants a discussion on Manipur while on the other side, BJP Rajya Sabha targets the Congress for atrocities against women in Rajasthan. BJP leaders say that “Rahul Gandhi is still not blame-free, the final verdict is yet to come.”
